-presidential running mate paul ryan. a legal challenge to the president's health-care law. >> thank you for being with us. >> good morning. >> let me show our viewers the headline. oklahoma challenges the health law in a new suit, the supreme court had ruled on president obama's health-care law. you have filed a new suit, what is it? >> we filed in january of 20 11 and within two weeks, we filed a separate action from the proceedings and florida. there was a total of 28 states. the focus of our original lawsuit was about the constitutionality of the law in its totality as a related to the commerce clause and the individual mandate. we began that litigation and motions were filed by the government and then the case was taken to the supreme court. after the decision, i filed a motion to lift the stay in oklahoma asking the judge to consider an amendment to our complaint. as you know, the original challenge about the constitutionality of the law, this is about implementation. this addresses the concerns about the irs ruled that was adopted on may 18 and the affordable care act's implementation of th
? >> well, here is the thing. there are so many things wrong with this current health-care tax law. in addition to adding $1 trillion in spending, we are taking $700 million out of medicare. that is why seniors are so concerned that they will have access to doctors. there are some that said they will not take any more medicare patients. having these decisions made by medicare doctors and patients, not bureaucracies. i would make it a reversible tax credit, where people get coverage for major medical procedures, and by having its portable, it means that if somebody moves from job to job, they do not have to worry about a pre-existing condition that they or somebody in their family may have , so the me, that is a positive approach. it puts patients and hospitals and doctors in charge rather than washington. that would be a paradigm shift. the solution is not moving the $700 million from medicare, which is something we have to make solvent. it is in precarious shape. we will be right back, after this. we continue with our discussions. >> governor kaine, whether you think same-sex coup
: our next call is kevin on the line from the democrats. caller: my view on paul ryan is that his health-care plan, the vouchers, it allows an increase based on inflation. in the last 10 years the cost of health care has gone up 11% per year. so it would be up to the individual voucher holder to pay the difference. this has had a tremendous impact on the votes of older people. recent polls show older people are leaving the republican party because of the direct impact of paul ryan as being chosen as vice president. host: let's hear from john in pennsylvania on the independent line. good morning. will the vice-presidential candidates impact your vote? are you there? let's try missoni in fort worth, texas. -- tony in fort worth, on the democratic line. caller: yes, i think it will impact the vote, for me in particular. during the primaries, i think mitt romney and saw that a generic candidate would probably beat barack obama. i think that's why he is not elaborate on any of his plans. then he chose paul ryan, who has a very distinguished voting record and he has written policies that are extrem
a better health-care networks for the poor. i believe if the government blocked -- done away with the strings and the manas, i could have overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. -- do away with the mandates. health care for those over 65. get the federal government out of health care completely. get is how we're going to out of this. giving it up to the states. 50 laboratories of innovation. i think that is exactly what we will have. we will have some fabulous success. we will also have some horrible failures. that's how we will find ourselves out of this. host: gary johnson is joining us from new mexico this morning. we will put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen. you can see the phone lines on the bottom of the screen. as we take a look at the libertarian nominee. there was a recent gallup poll. americans are sort of split on the need for a third party. is your argument for a third party -- what is your argument for a third party? guest: i would argue i'm not the third choice but the only choice. i will be on the ballot in all 50 states. we're on the ba
been and are still being made in education, healthcare, modernization, social infrastructure, direct payments to the poorest households. and in our battle against hiv/aids, a new plan has been launched to consolidate agai -- gains that have been made in reducing the prevalence of the disease. our target is to achieve elimination and expand access to anti revival therapy -- anti- retroviral therapy for persons living with hiv/aids. the equivalent of about $80 million, the contribution to the financing of this strategic plan. but this is not enough. we are now finding ourselves in a rather ironic situation, one that is threatening the advances we've made thus far. ghana, like developing countries that have made remarkable headway in combating this disease, is becoming a victim of its own success. as the numbers of disease and rates of infection and mortality go down, so, too, to the figures in the global funding for hiv/aids programs. this leaves a considerable financing gap for many countries such as ghana that are not only trying to maintain progress but to move closer to complete er
